Seek the Truth

"We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit." 1 John 4:6

Satan is very crafty and is skilled in philosophic deception. Paul expressed concern that the Corinthians might be deceived by Satanís craftiness and be led astray from the truth. Proverbs says that there is a way that seems right to a man but its end is death.

Our text today reveals that there is a spirit of truth and a spirit of deceit. The Apostle John says this to explain why some listened to him and others did not. Those who listened to his instructions and received him as Christís Apostle, were being led by the spirit of truth. He wrote this letter during a time when many had fallen from the faith and much of the Church no longer recognized his apostolic authority.

Jesus said, -"Seek and you shall find. . .knock and the door will be opened to you." Jesus identified Himself as the Truth. Truth is not something you convince yourself of, truth is what God declares it to be.

Deceit and lies will always seek you, but when it comes to truth you must do the seeking. As a human being you should know by experience that the whole truth regarding anything must always be actively pursued. Truth never just falls in your lap.

The Heavenly Father is seeking true worshipers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. Sometimes to find the truth you have to tear down a citadel of deception and sin. Satan does his best to hide the truth because he knows it has the power to free those in bondage to sin.

 Jesus said, -"You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Godís precious truths are found where the citadels of deception have fallen.
